    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 29.95

    During the tumultuous closing decades of the nineteenth century, as the prospect of democracy loomed and as intensified global economic and strategic competition reshaped the political imagination, British thinkers grappled with the question of how best to organize the empire.

    I.B.Tauris 2009; US$ 58.00

    Politics were often turbulent in African countries in the period leading to their independence in the 1950s and beyond.
